Serena Williams Says She’s Considering Retirement. Say It Ain’t So!
But we commend her. In an interview with InStyle, she says she may be ready to hang up her tennis racket and focus on expanding her family. Could another baby bundle be on the way? 😍
“We’ve got to have more. I don’t know if I want to play if I have another baby,” Williams said in InStyle‘s August 2018 Bada** issue. “I need to talk to Alexis. We need a plan.”
She continued, “If I weren’t working, I’d already be pregnant. The only rule I have at practice is to be done at 1 p.m. because as much as I love tennis, I need to be with her [Alexis].”
And now, let’s revisit this incredibly adorable photo of Serena and baby Alexis:

Here’s Rashida Jones and Donald Glover’s #TimesUp PSA.
Jones and Glover have joined forces for an animated PSA about workplace sexual harassment. According to Jones, who directed the PSA, it was created to explain the nuanced dynamics happening within power imbalance amid discussion about what constitutes assault.
“It’s been a tough conversation to include men in, because I think there are a lot of things women feel men have not understood up until now, and they don’t feel like it’s their job to educate them,” she told Buzzfeed. “This is not a mandate; we’re not telling people how to live their lives. This is really just to incite self-reflection and for people to look at the way they behave in their workplaces.”
Head to Buzzfeed to watch the Glover-narrated PSA now.
